Workforce Acceleration

We help growing companies deliver more with extended teams

We have managed distributed STEM teams for 200+ companies ranging from 5 to 100+ team members.

Each team is built around a startup's unique requirements, supporting multiple departments and functions.

Why Extended Teams

The right model for startups to quickly expand delivery bandwidth

Dedicated (vs. Bench)

Teams are hired for each startup, and not allocated from an existing "bench" shared with other companies.


Quick & Scalable

Extended teams are brought onboard faster than internal hires when growing startups need them.


Niche Skills

With teams hired around the unique requirements of each company, more niche or scarce skills can be brought onboard.


Cultural Sync

Extended teams organize across the existing department(s), roles, salaries, culture(s) of a company.


Continuous Workflow

Avoid the rigidity, starts, stops of project outsourcing. Implement ongoing, agile, evolutionary methodologies.


Training

Extend existing employee learning and development initiatives to extended staff.


Critical Work

Expand critical, complex projects that demand greater control over workflow and IP.
